But so far either everyone replying is Klingon or I am wrong in my assessment.
The following are feds that have said pvp is balanced. Your assessment is wrong.

LtC-Capt ranks are some of the best PvP matches Ive had. Wether its FvF or FvK. the weapons/consoles/boffs arent too crazy and there are many different set-ups you can have to win. End game it seems if you dont have the right stuff you'll never make it.

Just some basic design flaws. That need some serious tweaking.
Like I don't think the way resources work in cap and hold salvage operation maps makes a lot of sense.
I think Shantytown is an amazing example of the developers trying to add flavor to PVP but still demonstrating that PVP needs more tweaks.
I think the issue with queues demonstrates it's not balanced.
No, it's not balanced.
But in terms of federation vs. KDF ... I've not found it to be an issue. It makes for good and entertaining threads. That are fun to read. But no, that's not much of an issue.

This is the case in 90% of PUGs I am in. PvP is balanced, the Problem is Fed Ships have built in magnets that somehow keep them together.
Admittedly most of my pvp experience is on the klingon side, but I have pvp'ed on my feds from time to time. Honestly I personally do just as well on the fed side as I do on the klingon side, its usually the team on the fed side that lets me down. i'll throw out team invites whenever I get into a match but some just refuse to accept them and then go off on their own.
Cap and hold does have a small problem with the cloak on klingon side. Unless they are actually capping or fighting you don't know where the klingons are usually, as a klingon however its fairly easy to keep track of the majority of the feds and you can plan your attack easier. Feds however don't want to head to a point on their own and risk getting ganked so they stay grouped up more often than not and that just makes you lose.
Over all though in my experience pvp (at least before tier 5) is pretty well balanced.
